The finished product= best pie ever!!!!
1 (15 ounce) package pastry for a 9-inch double crust pie
1 egg, beaten
5 cups sliced and peeled peaches
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I think we used a smidge more)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmug
2 tablespoons butter
1. Preheat the oven to 450' F.
2. Line the bottom and sidess of a 9-inch pie plate with one of the pie crusts. Brush with some of the beaten egg to keep the dough from becoming soggy later.
3. Place the sliced peaches in a large bowl, and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix gently. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour over the peaches, and mix gently. Pour into the pie crust, and dot with butter. Cover with the other pie crust, and fold the edges under. Flute the edges to seal or press the edges with the tines of a fork dipped in egg. Brush the remaining egg over the top crust. Cut several slits in the top crust to vent steam.
4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated over, then reduce the heat to 350' and bake for an additional 30-45 minutes, until the crust is brown and the juice begins to bubble through the vents. If the edges brown too fast, cover them with strips of aluminum foil about halfway through baking. Cool before serving. This tastes better warm than hot.
The tree ring my dad built in the front yard; very impressive!
The flowers my mom planted in it; they have really bloomed! So pretty!
My parents house- at least for another few months! This is where I grew up since the age of two!
This last shot is a really random one, but it's actually a picture of a picture that my mom LOVES and wants to frame from when Meg and I were little. If not already obvious, I am on the right with the mullet-ish hair and Megan is on the left. I know, very fancy outfits.....Anyway, the reason mom loves this pic is because it shows Meg and my true personalities. Meg, the introvert is clearly skeptical of the photographer, evident by the fact that her right hand is clenched into her thigh, while she holds on to my leg, as the big sister I will obviously protect her. Also note in this picture how amused I look; probably tried to start a conversation with the photographer! These traits still somehow hold true today, as I have rarely met a stranger and my sister is somewhat shy around new people.
So, that was the weekend all in all. Hope everyone else had a good one as well!
